Solemnity

boy-in-front-of-house

he’s about to enter his future
by going through his past

it’s a harsh route he’s
chosen,
his commitment
is vast

don’t let his boyish looks
or pre-pubescent frame

fool you into thinking
that strength is not
his game

his power now lives
within
his robust heart

pumping love and
courage to every part
of his being

the car and driver
will be waiting
however long
it takes

to go
through his past

to enter his
future

    1. Gerry, I can’t take credit for being the one to actually find this image. I saw it on The Blog Propellant, loved it, copied it and lived with it for a month or so before posting. The main thing that hit me, right in the heart, was the vulnerability of the adolescent boy. Thanks for the comment!
